Eelyn has been commissioned by Chinese Art Now to make her latest short film

about

 

Eelyn Lee is an award-winning artist and filmmaker who has exhibited across UK including Barbican, Tate Modern, National Portrait Gallery and Whitechapel Gallery as well as internationally in Paris, Berlin, Bogotá and Toronto.

Eelyn’s socially engaged practice combines collective research, devised theatre, screen writing and filmmaking to create frameworks for ensembles of collaborators to work together. Her Chinese/English heritage motivates her interest in race, identity and ’othering’. She is currently developing a narrative feature film exploring empire and race with a twist on the western and horror genres.

In 2016 Eelyn co-founded Social Art Network who convened the inaugural Social Art Summit [2018], an artist-led review of socially engaged arts practice in UK and beyond.

That we would see something translated so profoundly from a theatrical space to a cinematic one in just a handful of days is really extraordinary... A wonderful paradox."
